    Scroll below for a list of our top DVDs from this past year. The great thing about this list is that it's not a list of our favorites, but it's a list of your favorites. These are the DVDs that influenced thousands of families this past year.

    This years top ten includes thrillers, documentaries, drama, sports stories, TV miniseries and love stories.

    The Bible: The Epic Miniseries

    Get swept up into the adventure, drama and wonder of the Bible with this 10-hour miniseries from Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) and her husband, producer Mark Burnett (Survivor). Breathtaking in scope and scale, The Bible features powerful performances, exotic locales and dazzling visual effects that breathe spectacular life into the dramatic tales of faith and courage from Genesis through Revelation.

    Packed with action and gritty realism, you'll meet Abraham and Moses, witness the birth of Jesus, experience The Last Supper and marvel at the resurrection. Features a score by legendary film composer Hans Zimmer.

    Monumental

    What made America great? Find out in Monumental: In Search of America's National Treasure, a fascinating documentary about liberty, religious freedom and the bedrock of our nation. Follow actor Kirk Cameron as he digs 400 years into our history, tracing the steps of the pilgrims and examining the beliefs that established our nation. What will it take to restore America to all the founding fathers dreamed it could be and secure a 'monumental' future for our children? Discover the true national treasure of America in Monumental.

    Courageous

    As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.

    While they consistently give their best on the job, "good enough" seems to be all they can muster as dads. They quickly discover that their standard is missing the mark. When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a new found urgency help these dads draw closer to God...and to their children?

    Filled with action-packed police drama, Courageous is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moving-making ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the type of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.

    The Grace Card

    When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God and just about everyone else. His rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he is partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.

    Mac's home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school. Sam Wright never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church does not always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to Sergeant, Sam starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate.

    Can Mac and Sam somehow join forces to help one another when it seems impossible for either of them to look past their differences, especially the most obvious one?

    Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer The Grace Card, and never underestimate the power of God's love.

    The Mark

    What was supposed to be an ordinary overseas flight turns into an extraordinary mid-air battle between the forces of good and evil in The Mark.

    The international economy is on the verge of collapse. On a flight from Bangkok to Berlin is Chad Turner (Craig Sheffer), a former soldier who has abandoned his faith and carries the hope for the world - a biometric microchip implanted in his arm capable of of revolutionizing Global trade. Chad is accompanied by Dan Cooper (Eric Roberts), head of the Avanti Corporation, inventors of the new technology.

    Also on the flight is group of mercenaries, lead by Joseph Pike (Gary Daniels), with plans of hijacking the plane and stealing the microchip for their mysterious leader, Philypp Turk (Ivan Kamaras).

    In the midst of a catastrophic worldwide event, the true nature of the chip is revealed. Is it civilization’s salvation, or a powerful weapon to be used by the ultimate evil?

    Home Run

    Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues - but off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control. Hoping to save her client's career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory's agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can't wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.

    As his young players help him rediscover the joy of the game, Cory begins to feel a need for freedom from his past and hope for his future - and to win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.

    Based on thousands of true stories, Home Run is a powerful reminder that with God, it's never too late - and that freedom is possible.

    Soul Surfer

    Bethany Hamilton (AnnaSophia Robb) was born to surf. A natural talent who took to the waves at a young age, she was leading an idyllic, sun-drenched, surfer girl's life on the Kauai Coast when everything changed.

    On the morning of October 31, Bethany was on a typical ocean outing when a 14-foot tiger shark came out of nowhere and seemed to shatter all her dreams. However, Bethany's feisty determination and steadfast faith spur her toward an adventurous comeback that gives her the grit to turn her loss into a gift for others - she's a Soul Surfer.

    Unconditional

    Samantha Crawford is living a storybook life: she’s happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she’s told and illustrated since childhood have become published books.

    When her husband Billy is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live. But a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe, her oldest friend.

    As Sam watches "Papa" Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life’s circumstances, the love of God is always reaching out to us.

    Amazing Love: The Story of Hosea

    Amazing Love: The Story of Hosea follows four teens who embark on a weekend camping trip with their youth group leader, Stuart, and his wife. Joining them is teen outsider Ashley, who is materialistic and self-involved, and whose bad attitude separates her from the rest of the group. When a confrontation occurs between Ashley and one of the other campers, this division widens.

    Hoping for a resolution, Stuart takes the opportunity to share with the group the touching story of the Old Testament prophet Hosea and his example of true commitment and unconditional love. Is this powerful story enough to inspire the teens to open their hearts to such an amazing love?
